Thought for the Week

The time for ashing has come.
The time to remember that we are dust and to dust we shall return.
Dust made by God.
The time to sit with the truth that we are created by God, in love, from the dust.
The time for ashing has come.
The time to make our fast and give our alms.
The time for stillness and quiet thought.
The time for repentance.
The time for gratitude.
The time for ashing has come.
